Overview

A visit to the Aland Maritime Museum is exciting for children and adults alike. The exhibitions are filled with dramatic stories and fantastic objects, such a genuine 18th century pirate’s flag. There are also lots of interactivities, such as a climbing mast, a bridge simulator and a karaoke. Seadog, landlubber or in between - Aland Maritime Museum has something for everybody.

Fascinating tour of the Maritime Museum beginning with the sailing ship building, ship safety and ships in time of war and peace. The history is much more interesting as the area of Aland had so many merchant sail boats for years.

Aland has a very deep-rooted tradition of seafaring, and this beautifully presented museum is the perfect place to get a sense of what life was like, both at sea and on land in the days of tall ships and more recent times. A must see.

Here is a place where our 6- and 10-year old girls really enjoyed their visits and have been speaking about ever since. There is a route for kids with questions and there are hidden things for them to find. Older children will do the effort...More

If you have the time, I would recommend this. The pirate flag alone is worth the visit! It gives you a great idea of what the history of this area is all about.

Good question, You will easily fill one day in the museum, probably two. When the four masted barcue Pommern is reopened (dec 2018), Then You will fill two days for sure.
